I dont recommend this pistol in .22LR. It doesnt have an extractor. An ejector, but no extractor. Ive had mine for over a decade. Its built to jam. Firing CCI Stingers help somewhat if you really stiffarm your hold so the pistol gets maximum recoil. Typically the jams are due to a fired roud not extracting. Sometimes (after a successful extraction and ejection) the following round jams on the loading ramp and leave dents that have to be polished out. One time at the range the front edge of both grips popped out of the frame while firing. (Look at the above picture to see that the grip screws are at the rear of the grips.) Im not exactly sure why it did that, but the slide recoil levers and recoil springs ride against the inside of the grips and that may have something to do with it. Do not bet your life on the .22LR version. Maybe the .25 is better. I do not know, though.
